Now that I am back in school I am no longer doing paid web design, but I needed something to keep my creative juices flowing, so I went back to scrapbooking! I used to be big into paper scrapbooking, had a whole room full of supplies and everything- then life got busy and I stopped, but about 5 years ago I found out about digital scrapbooking. I feel head over heels in love, just like paper scrapbooks you get to be creative- but there is no mess to clean up, no scraps of paper, lot’s less expense, and well- as a graphic designer- I love it!
I took a break after a while but saved all of my digital scrapbooking supplies (over 30 gigs on a external hard drive!) and am now back into it full swing, I love how portable it is, I can work on a page in-between classes, sometimes even during class if I am waiting on it to start!
I am already on three great creative teams, Plum Dumpling Designs, Inspirations from Day, and Faith True Originals. So expect to hear more about them soon! A creative team is where the designer ‘hires’ you to promote and work with their product, I get the new designs before they are in the stores, I make layouts with them and when the kit is released it is my job to post about it on forums, my blog, etc. Being part of a creative team is important to me because I love being part of a team, and because I only join designers I love I know I will love working with their designs!
School is going great, I am two semesters in right now and still holding a 4.0, I have some hard classes this semester and have really surprised myself with how well I am doing! I just can’t wait to finish all of these pre-requisites and get into the actual nursing program!
